School Closure Information

This page displays all emergency school closures that fall outside of the agreed Merthyr Tydfil term calendar .

The decision to close a school is taken by the head teacher and chair of governors based on local conditions with the health and safety of pupils and staff being the major consideration. Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council will not be taking a decision to close all schools but reserve the right to suspend school transport through discussion with transport contractors based on health and safety grounds.
